World premiere opera featuring John Riesen from Opera Modo at Ant Hall September 28 and 29
HAMTRAMCK—Opera Modo offers the world premiere of Evan Snyder’s A Capacity for Evil at The Ant Hall at Planet Ant on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29, at 7:30 pm.
Inspired by the tradition of Sherlock Holmes, the detective tale, A Capacity for Evil, is based on an original story conceived by the composer Evan L. Snyder, and by tenor John Riesen. The story follows Daniel, a famed 1930s private eye, who, with help from his partner Doyle and his fiancée Angelica, works to unravel a series of grisly religious murders occurring on New Years Eve before the unknown murderer is able to realize the full scope of his perverse aims. As tensions rise and time runs short, the bonds between the three friends are tested – the limits of human compassion and trust tried against the dark ordeals of this imperceptible murderer. The production features John Riesen, Gillian Cotter Riesen, Christopher Hodson, and Evan Ross.
Tickets now available online at www.planetant.com.
